The Painted Turtle Camp

< | >

The Painted Turtle Camp is located on a 160-acre site near Lake Hughes, California. The camp is one of a network of facilities developed and operated by the foundation created by actor Paul Newman. It provides a summer camp experience for children with chronic diseases by enabling them access to the natural environment while maintaining full accessibility to, and availability of, support services. The camp project that House & Robertson executed consists of 32 separate new buildings, including cabins, staff housing, arts and crafts buildings, gymnasium, medical clinic, dining hall, boathouse and stable. The project involved a number of complex site development challenges, including all new roads, utilities and extensive flood control measures. It was completed in 2004.
